Many of our sponsor dogs are “special needs” greyhounds whose stay at our California adoption center may be longer than most, requiring more resources to feed, medicate and provide other care. Becoming a sponsor is a great way to be a GAC “insider” and get to know some of the greyhounds you are helping.
All it takes is a $20 (or more) monthly donation to be linked to one of our carefully chosen sponsor dogs. You’ll receive a monthly mailing complete with a photo of your dog and a detailed letter about all their activities. Once your dog finds a forever home, you’ll be the first to know!

Daegan is a 6-year-old boy who was rescued from the Macau Canidrome racetrack in China. He arrived with 4 other girls, all of whom were black, so they were named after some variation of word meaning "black." All of the dogs were in very good health when they arrived, save for some very bad teeth and skinny frames. Nothing a lot of food and some dental work can't fix! Click here to learn more about him.
Connelly is a young brindle boy who arrived from the Caliente racetrack on 11/28/18. He was born on 5/5/17 and he raced a grand total of 7 races, all of which he finished last in.
